Sorry we didn't have exactly what you wanted! Next time, be sure and try the fried pickles - we hope you will love those as much as the crab balls!

Had fried pickles for the first time. They were good. The salad I have was well worth the price. The atmosphere was great and we sat outside and it was such a nice lunch

Gnat's is an authentic island restaurants where the portions are generous and the picnic table seating often crowded at lunch and dinner. The food is good, portions are generous and the sweet potato fries awesome.

Went to Gnats on recommendation of locals. I had the blackened shrimp and grits and it was good but not memorable. It came out of the kitchen so fast but was just lukewarm. My wife had the grilled shrimp platter but neither of us could...More

Ate there for lunch. Loved the atmosphere. Staff was great. My husband had the gumbo soup and fried green tomatoes. He said they were very good. I had the crab cakes. When they came they were cold and burnt on both sides.

Glad we made you mostly happy! Sorry about the crab cakes - the cooks must have been "crabby" that day. Be sure to share your experience with a manager next time you come see us so we can make that everything is on point.

The staff is friendly and to me that was the highlight. The food only seemed average to my work group it may have been due to a huge party also there.
